    Hats off to Charlotte. One of my colleagues – one of the most distinguished players of her instrument in the business, with a PhD to boot – being one of the nearly 40% of musicians who didn’t qualify for any state subsidy despite their work and income totally evaporating, after spending a miserable few months offering to wash cars standing on people’s drives, got a license to transport pedigree cats across the UK. Her first job was to transport an animal from the south of England to the outer Hebrides. After an eight-minute handover there she caught the same ferry back, now minus her erstwhile feline companion. Musicians are certainly adaptable.
